About Us

Since 2008, the Minority Business Executive Program (MBEP) at the University of Washington has focused on increasing the competitiveness of diverse-owned businesses. The program is supported by the University of Washington Foster School of Business Executive Education and the Consulting and Business Development Center, in conjunction with NW Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council (NWMMSDC), corporations, and government partners.

MBEP has accelerated the growth of numerous diverse suppliers to the nation’s leading corporations. Business revenue growth for program alumni averages more than 10%, and our corporate partners continue to see improved performance from the companies they sponsor to attend.

A major component in the success of MBEP is the generous financial support from our corporate partners.

The annual financial support of corporate partners is critical to the success of the Minority Business Executive Program.

Participant program fee is $5,500 inclusive of all instruction, materials, and events. Application deadline is November 1, 2024.
